MOSCOW, December 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Growing demand for diamonds and reducing production in medium term will remain basic market drivers and will cause price growth, experts of the diamond market said during a meeting with top management of ALROSA, the world’s biggest producer of diamonds.

“The participants in the meeting discussed ALROSA’s work on long-term agreements as the company has adopted in late 2012 rules for selling natural diamonds and stressed the positive changes in the transparency of trade and equal access of the market participants to the diamond raw material,” the company says.
The experts spoke about necessary market efforts from major players to stimulate demand for diamond jewellery in the world, and a necessary common approach to regulations for turnover of synthetic diamonds.
